It’s inside where you find quiet

The frantic outside where you find the riot

It hardly matters what’s all around

Peace residing inside is where you find ground


Seek to find answers in your noble self

No answers for you in anyone else

The depth of your knowing cannot be compared

To other oracles do not be scared


It’s fearful amazing to fully embrace

Inside your knowing sustains your grace

It’s not externals or a foreign source

You can’t leave your essence or from yourself divorce


Reflect ponder what is stored within

When you feel choice-less seeking a new whim

Listen to your voices let them bubble up

Let sweet words counsel fill your empty cup


Only you have answers to riddles in your being

Your unique solutions come from your seeing

Engage with others do hear them out

In the final vote let your voice shout


Do you think someone else has your answers?

Where does that thinking come from?

How did those thought forms come to inhabit your consciousness?

What might you do to transcend old ways of thinking with new thought forms?

I have always been a seeker, always looking for the answers to what seekers ponder. I can remember Dr. Maxwell Maltz and Psychocybernetics; Dr. Carl Rogers On Becoming a Person. Moving through my legal training and practicing law the focus was always about people and how to better their lives. All that searching, reading, studying and introspective work culminated in this collection of daily readings for seekers.

My work in the world has progressed from fighting legal cases to mediating divorces to helping people understand the essentials of relationship and collaborating to these poems. How can we collaborate effectively and work with each other in harmony to create the world we seek. How can we mindfully enable this world to become a place that works for all.

My prayer is that through introspection using these poems as a guide we can all grow together in making the world the Heaven on Earth we all aspire toward.
